COWDENBEATH boss Dougie Hill has continued to reshape his squad for next season by completing the signing of experienced Stirling Albion star Aaron Dunsmore.

The 27-year-old arrived at Central Park this week after leaving the Binos, who were relegated to SPFL League Two after losing out in the play-offs.

Dunsmore, who spent the latter end of the campaign on loan at Bonnyrigg Rose, was a youth player at Hibernian before spending five years with East Fife, after which he made the switch to Stirling in 2022.

He follows his team-mate Paul McLean, who will also take on a coaching role, in signing for the Blue Brazil, and Hill was delighted to bring in the wide midfielder, who can also play in defence.

"Aaron is a very good midfield player and has spent a number of years playing in League One and Two. He has just the sort of experience that we need to help our young players," he said.

"Like Paul McLean, he will be a very useful player for the club."

On signing for the club, Dunsmore commented: "I am delighted to get the chance to join up at Cowdenbeath.

"I played against Dougie for quite a few years, and also played alongside Paul McLean last season, so when I heard Cowden were interested, I was excited to get aboard. I want to help the club have a successful season and climb that Lowland League table."

Hill also said that it would be ideal to get another three experienced players signed before pre-season starts on June 20, adding: "I am speaking to a few other lads and it would be good to have them here for the training sessions getting underway.

"There will, I hope, be an avenue to get a couple of loan signings in the run-up to the big kick-off, but we will have to wait on that one as it is always the last few weeks before the season starts before clubs decide on their squads."

One player who will not be at the club next season is left-back / midfielder Andy Rodden, who has joined Broxburn Athletic, who were promoted to the Lowland League after winning the East of Scotland Premier League title.

Rodden spent most of the first-half of last season suspended, after a sending-off against Hearts B in August, but enjoyed a good spell between the turn of the year until April, when he was a regular.
